The Art Group was originally started in March 2012 by Andrew Seymour. The intention was for like minded people to be together and enjoy exchanging ideas and experiences of various forms of art. In 2014 Andrew moved away and Pat Tucker volunteered to take over.
Pat hastens to add “that meant I open the door, put the tables up and made the coffee!
We are of varying abilities, and work in different mediums. However, four years on, we are a thriving group of art loving enthusiasts, with a full complement of attendees. We have a demonstrator about once a year; go on an outside expedition to enjoy a building, or a garden, and usually gather for a Christmas lunch.”
The group had a very successful and well attended exhibition in September 2017 (see below).

The Keevil Art Show, September 2017
A massive thank you to so many of our villagers, friends and relatives who took part by displaying their art work, helping with the displays, making cakes and acting as ‘bouncers’ on the door! We were a little apprehensive but nevertheless determined to create an atmosphere that all could enjoy – and we think it worked. John Duckworth’s family were very grateful for everyone’s efforts, and appreciate that the £565 raised will be paid into a fund, in his name, to assist with the maintenance of the organ in St. Leonard’s Church.
